Camp Pin Oak, shot on Superia 400 film. (unedited)
On Saturday, my brother got married and I shot my first wedding. I had always told myself that I would never take wedding photos. It seemed like such an overwhelming and unenjoyable thing to do. But being able to capture the love and happiness that filled this room on that day was an incredible rush. The anticipation I felt while waiting for this roll of film to be developed was the only overwhelming part about it.

part of i must be missing the point until April 4
i must be missing the point presents a series of dichotomies between work and mind. Reducing mental health awareness and the artist's’ own position in society and future to a layering of contexts and feelings in various directions. This encourages the viewer, and artist, to question what exactly is ‘the real’ and ‘the true?’ by posing the question ‘are we all really disassociated and numb to reality?’ The layers presented polarise internal thoughts and feelings and range from what can be termed ‘normal and healthy’ to the ‘broken down and hopeless’ where the removal of self within our contemporary society becomes nothing more than an advert, a meme, a social media presence or a faux-presentation of a brand. The repeating motif of helloesposito is at once a slogan or brand placeholder to hang the contexts upon, and the also the artist’s extension of self to promote, connect and engage.
